Those bags by Anja Kroencke are awesome. I’m a sucker for a cool illustration on a bag — I got the Julie Verhoeven one last year (?) and I use it all the time.

OMG, the last thing I need is a makeup bag – I use an indestructible LeSportsac makeup bag in my handbag, and I have a gazillion makeup bags that have accumulated from GWP’s. But I might still pull the trigger on those graffiti ones, LOL.

I’m sorry if that’s not appropriate Christine, it’s just I can’t help it! That first one with the bubble letters… they look like a buncha booties!

I didn´t see it until it was pointed out and I actually scrolled to see the image again, all of you are so careful with details lol 😛 .

I really like that first graphitti-style bag but then I saw the price! Any info on how big these are yet? They look so small in these pictures but I know MAC bags are usually fairly small (and pricy).

Last year’s description from one that was available (it still shows online):

François Berthoud’s modern graphic sensibility transforms this small makeup bag with floral images and bold colour blocks. Features zip closure, looped handle and all the space you need to hold your M•A•C essentials. Limited edition.

175mm x 45mm x 105mm
US$35.00

I must be super immature, or because the letters are bubbled really weirdly, but when when i saw the first makeup back you had featured, all I could think was, “Wow that’s a lot of colourful butts!” XDD;

I actually had to scroll back up to see those bubbled letters you were talking about, lol. I didn’t even notice them at first, I only saw the butts.
